Herman Cain on "Fox & Friends" (Fox News/screen grab)

Failed presidential candidate Herman Cain claims evangelicals aren't single issue voters, which is why they're supporting Trump

Because all those folks out there protesting in front of Planned Parenthood are also worried about the deficit

Former Godfather's pizza mogul and failed GOP presidential hopeufl Herman Cain was on Fox News this morning to discuss what can only be called the "aftermath" of Donald Trump's resounding victory on SuperTuesday, and he tried to comfort conservatives by insisting that evangelical support for Trump was well-founded.

Trump won "the state of Georgia because [evangelicals] are not single-issue voters, which is a mistake a lot of the pollsters make."

"Fox and Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade wasn't really buying it, however, repeating something he attributed to David Axelrod, that "Georgia has sort of a down-scale vote."

Cain took issue with that characterization, saying "Axelrod represents a party trying to represent a party that's trying to elect a liar, so I don't think he should throw stones at Georgia voters. The Democrats haven't been able to stop Trump with any of their attacks, so now they're attacking the people who support Trump. They're desperate."
